Project: Immunological significance of cells in the milk of cows with low somatic cell counts.

project duration
01-JAN-00 – 31-DEC-02
The purpose of the project is to set up a protocol for isolation, identification and functional evaluation of cells in the milk in relation to their role in defense against intramammary infections with environmental pathogens. The influence of parity, stage of lactation, the milk fraction and the cell count (low/high somatic cell count, SCC) will be investigated.
